    Not that at 0:30 in this video you have to tick a tick box that states:-

    “By entering a URL, you represent that you have the right to permit us to reproduce this content on the Facebook site and that the content is not obscene or illegal.”

    Make sure you understand this FULLY before proceeding.

    It seems to have trouble bringing the photos over. Anyone else have this problem?

      I’m currently using the feature as well and it is pulling in my gallery thumbnails without any trouble and even preserving the links to the big versions. They don’t show in my profile view, but they show if I go to Notes or look at the individual Notes entries.

    I haven’t tried this yet due to lack of time, but I have a question. Does anyone know if you can import ANY blog into facebook? I have wordpress installed on my hosting acct and was curious if this would work also, or if it had to be from an actual wordpress blog.

    Reuben, I use the NetworkedBlogs app to import blog posts and it seems to pull pictures in “ok”.

    It seemed to work fine for me. I use plugins called zemanta and amazon reloaded to add most of my images.

    i already imported my wp blogs content to FB (see atmonadi.com). Using Wp-plurk plugin you can also ditribute the content link (just only title) into Plurk, and from here redistribute to FB, Twitter, MP, and Tumblr. My Blog also installed mobile wp plugins, with thi pludinso i can post from my handphone (this is simple hp nexian ng-800 model) to myblog for short message (120 chars) and can be view on FB also.

      If you follow the instructions in the video, when you get to the point where you would normally be adding the feed, you’ll instead see a button that says “Stop Importing”. That should do the trick.

      Hi chozenone – I recorded the tutorial with ScreenFlow, edited in Final Cut Pro, recorded audio with Soundtrack Pro, and do titles etc. in After Effects. However, most of that could be done right from within ScreenFlow (on a mac) or Camtasia (on Windows). Hope that helps!

    • ethicalbusinessbuilder

      It doesn’t look like anyone has responded yet, but you can definitely just import it to your Business Fan page. This is what I did for my EthicalBusinessBuilder.com blog:

      In FB, bring up your Fan Page (click on Ads and Pages in the bottom left)
      On the Edit Page screen, scroll down to Notes and click Edit
      This will bring up the Notes Tab JUST for your Fan Page.
      Carry on from about 0:15 from there.

      If you don’t have a Notes Tab on your Fan Page, view the Page and click on the big + sign where Wall, Info, Photos, Discussion, Etc. are located to add a Notes Tab.

      Hope that helps. :-)

        I have done this several times and it keeps showing up in my personal FaceBook page, not the business page. I know the process, it just isn’t working. Everything looks correct, but it still shows up on the personal page.

        • ethicalbusinessbuilder

          Dave, The only other issue I had was that since I imported my blog into my personal page first, I had to remove that import from the Notes area. Then I deleted every blog that I imported one-by-one by going to each individual Note and clicking Remove.

          That removed the blogs that I imported to my personal page and they haven’t shown up since however they are working perfectly with my business page.

          Sorry if that doesn’t provide any more help. That’s just my experience.

    Does anyone know if this will keep streaming new entries to FB notes or do you have to import each time you want to update this? I’ve never had much success getting each post to import automatically and it’s occurred to me that maybe this feature doesn’t do that. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    For all of you guys wondering what’s going on with this terribly broken Facebook feature, I’ll explain it to you… IT’S BROKEN.

    Most of the time you have to stop importing notes, then reimport a blog, and on other occasions, Facebook Notes doesn’t even recognize the feed.

    Unfortunately, you can’t do this anymore, facebook have withdrawn the facility. I am currently experimenting with the woodbooker plugin. It works, although it’s complicated to set up, and I haven’t done it to my own satisfaction yet, and handily it also imports facebook comments to the blog as well.
    Hope this will help someone.
